Sector: Leisure/Entertainment, General Commercial Litigation
Issue: Entrepreneur with Partnership Dispute and Misrepresentation case

Andrew Grant, Director: Chris is an Entrepreneur with whom I’ve worked for more than ten years and in that time we have handled a variety of cases for him. Our initial work involved a Partnership dispute where we received a negative  barristers opinion on the strength of the claim. Undeterred we took the matter to Arbitration, an option which many are unaware is available. Arbitration has the benefit of being far quicker than litigation and requires a different approach, but in the circumstances we felt it was the correct strategic decision. We fought and won the case including compensation of over £100,000.00.

We continue to work with Chris on a variety of cases and enjoy a real team approach to all our work together. For entrepreneurs it can be invaluable to have the equivalent of an ‘in-house’ lawyer available to offer ad hoc strategic and practical advice and outline options for them. Chris, like other entrepreneurs moves quickly and benefits from the responsiveness that a boutique firm like ours offers. We understand that and enjoy working with such dynamic individuals where we can add real value not just once a dispute arises, but across their business activities.

Chris Coleman, Entrepreneur, JungleMania: I prefer dealing with Ballantyne Grant to larger firms as the personal approach and attention to detail surpass larger practices. They communicate very well and deal with things promptly yet the approach is relaxed.  There is a level of dedication and one-to-one attention which does give the impression that you’re their only client and Andrew is usually on the end of a phone if I need some fast advice on an issue.

I know that I will always be given a realistic view of the chances of success in any action I’m contemplating and, as with the partnership dispute, offered choices that other practices may not consider such as Arbitration. As specialist litigators Ballantyne Grant have the necessary knowledge in specific areas of law that relate to my cases and they also offer access to respectable good quality chambers and counsel.

It’s a great benefit to any business to have a source of reliable, trusted high quality legal advice like Ballantyne Grant who feel like part of your own team.
